Teacher Bullies Child for Mentioning Bible

Leave a comment

This is from Godfather Politics.

We are allowing the muslims and atheist to win.

Our freedom of religion has been stripped away from public schools.

This is one of many reasons to homeschool. 

 

You may recall the California teacher who confiscated a student’s candy canes meant as Christmas gifts for classmates because the attached tags mentioned Jesus, tore off the tags and told the boy, “Jesus is not allowed in school.”

Now comes a report of another out-of-control, atheistic autocrat disguised as a teacher.

On December 19 in Temecula, California, Helen Hunt-Jackson Elementary first-grader Brynn Williams was prevented by her teacher from sharing with her class an ornament of the Star of Bethlehem.

Brynn’s class was given “share bags” with an assignment to bring from home something that represented a family Christmas tradition.

 

On December 19 in Temecula, California, Helen Hunt-Jackson Elementary first-grader Brynn Williams was prevented by her teacher from sharing with her class an ornament of the Star of Bethlehem.

Brynn’s class was given “share bags” with an assignment to bring from home something that represented a family Christmas tradition.

Brynn brought a Star of Bethlehem ornament that tops her family’s Christmas tree. When it was her turn to give a 1-minute presentation, Brynn began by explaining the meaning of the star.

According to her family’s lawyers, Brynn said, “Our Christmas tradition is to put a star on top of our tree. The star is named the Star of Bethlehem. The three kings followed the star to find baby Jesus, the Savior of the world. John

At that point, the lawyers say, the teacher screamed, “Stop right there! Go take your seat!”

The teacher then reportedly told the rest of the class that Brynn was not allowed to share any verses or discuss the Bible in any way. Brynn was the only child prevented from finishing her presentation.

The principal met with Brynn and her mother and reportedly told them that the state’s education code supports the teacher.

According to Advocates for Faith and Freedom, which is legally representing Brynn, “The principal explained that the school district has strict rules about sharing beliefs publicly because there have been lawsuits. The principal had apparently spoken to the teacher and said that the teacher had to stop Brynn because ‘we don’t want to offend other students.'”

 

This isn’t the first such incident of religious discrimination by teachers in the Temecula Valley Unified School District, according to Advocates for Faith and Freedom.

General counsel Robert Tyler sent the district a letter in October requesting that teachers receive training in religious freedom and tolerance, following an incident at Marguerita Middle School in which students were assigned to select and read a piece of nonfiction literature. One student elected to read a selection from the Bible, but the teacher publicly ridiculed the Bible as fiction and disallowed the student’s choice.

Tyler said there was also a 2007 incident in the district where another teacher ridiculed Christian students.

In a letter to the superintendent, Tyler demanded that the district adopt a policy prohibiting teachers from mocking or publicly disapproving of a student’s faith. He also demanded that the district acknowledge students’ rights to express their religious views on campus without fear of teacher disapproval or reprisal

The teacher’s outburst hurt Brynn deeply, according to AFF: “In the eyes of a first-grader, the censorship resulted in a message of governmental disapproval and created a hostile environment, especially since it felt like she was being reprimanded in front of the entire class for sharing her family tradition and beliefs.”

This sort of thing in schools is a symptom of the long, slow push by some atheist activist groups and other liberals to remove Christianity from public view and establish atheism as the officially sanctioned religion of the United States.

Groups such as the Freedom From Religion Foundation have spent years suing over the most trivial public expressions of Christianity, and their long quest is bearing fruit in places like the education system, where knee-jerk fears about lawsuits have begun to replace common sense and create an intolerant, anti-Christian environment.

Under the rallying cry of “separation of church and state,” atheists are working to create a situation where hate against Christians is sanctioned and “tolerance” is only for those who go along with the agenda.

Tennessee: 5 pillars of Islam replace 10 Commandments in public school, tolerance reigns supreme

1 Comment

This is from the Bradley County News.

Why is promoting Islam a good thing but promoting Christianity

is not a good thing?

What is happening to America and Tennessee?

What would Davy Crockett and Sgt. Alvin C.York think of their home

state of Tennessee turning her back on God?

This post is long due to many links.

Tennessee: 5 pillars of Islam replace 10 Commandments in public school, tolerance reigns supreme

Springfield High School didn’t miss an opportunity to display and essentially express their desire to show their tolerance for an ever growing diverse community at a recent open house for parents and returning public school children.

On display on the freshmen hall wall of the Robertson County TN school, the 5 Pillars of Islam were pasted “up and down” the hallway proclaiming the “rules” to be a good student of Islam, much in the way the 10 Commandments direct Christians.

Photo of one of many posters observed in hallway of Springfield High School in Robertson County, TN.

http://www.jewsnews.co.il/2013/08/08/tennessee-five-pillars-of-islam-in-public-school/

The 5 Pillars were youthfully drawn onto a white cardboard canvas complete with definition and meanings of the 5 pillars of Islam. Interestingly enough the 5 Pillars contained what is often considered the 6th Pillar called Jihad and was missing Zakat,Charity or the tithing pillar which most religions consider very important, more so than Jihad or Holy War.

I was informed of this display from a very concerned parent who sent me a picture of the “poster” displaying the 5 Pillars and said they were all over the place and was very concerned that one “religious” set of rules had been tolerated and posted on school walls and one was not.

The only problem, to date, is the 5 Pillars stayed and the 10 Commandments came down.

The Jihad reference is a very strong one as many believe it along with Zakat or charity is helping fund many of the terroristic attacks around the world against Christians and believers of Christ.

Simply put, Jihad is war against the non believers, the kafir, you and me, and promotes death as a certain end if you fail to convert to Islam. And our schools and leftist groups are not saying a word and allowing this to be promoted in our TN public schools.

It is evident that the only religion allowed to express their religion and political clout in public schools are the Muslims and the teachings of Islam.

This is indoctrination through prostelyzation to the Kafirs, our children.

If they can have this type of access to our children all or none should be able to do the same.

Allowing one religion to be promoted in our public schools and not any others shows a deliberate bias and deliberate attempt to make one religious concept acceptable over another.

A certain hypocrisy is displayed and begs for at least questions to be asked as to why this has been allowed in these “politically correct” times and what is their motivation?

It is extremely obvious that while one  side is attacking the foundations of Christ, it is allowing and ignoring “other” representation of religious display.

As seen in the references provided below there are mutliple attempts, successfully I may add, by the extreme left to squash the display of any Christian literature or  historical foundational documents from our rich national heritage. Religious display other than Christian seems to be acceptable in our public schools.

The cry for tolerance of all religions is quickly being discovered to be a push for preference while softening or eliminating the evangelical voice in our state and nation.

At what point does it become acceptable to condemn one religion and all it’s tenets for the promotion of another. Where is the outrage by Christians on this subject who have been silenced and their beliefs replaced with the 5 Pillars of Islam.

The driving force behind acceptance comes when the cry for tolerance becomes intolerance and vica versa. As one wise person has said before, “what is good for the goose, is good for the gander!”

How does this foundation of Islam get to be displayed and the foundation of the Christian faith, the 10 Commandments get attacked and ordered removed by numerous lawsuits forcing their removal.

I believe school leaders and teachers are joining the PC crowd so as not to offend, unless of course you are Christian.

Meanwhile, the 5 Pillars of Islam doesn’t even raise a bleep on the radar screen of  the ultra liberal groups like the ACLU and The Freedom From Religion Foundation crying for their removal, not a word.

These same groups, at the drop of a hat repeat the mantra that our school or public institutions must be free from religion and influence of the church. “We must separate Church and State”, yet remain silent when Islam or others push for the same.

Its obvious to me this movement is not about separating Church and State and freedom from religion, it’s about removing God from our schools and dismantling the Christian movement. This effort by the left is and always has been about that. It is now being revealed.

If the measuring stick was religious influence on our children the leftist and the mainstream media would have made a bee line toward removing the 5 Pillars of Islam from our public schools just as they have the 10 commandments. But it is not, and will not!

To me, the first pillar of Shahadah, there is no god but Allah and Muhammed was his messenger is the most powerful “religious” statement that is going unchallenged. To ignore the call for Jihad in the hallways of our TN public schools should not be tolerated in any civilized setting.

These terroristic expressions of faith and duty by Islam should be condemned by all, including the Robertson County school board, Springfield High School Principal, parents, churches, congregations and teachers inside the system.

Religious freedom, if you believe it, should be applied here in great force to any god or religion! Right?

Showing bias toward one religion and not another shows hypocrisy with a good heap of partiality for one “religion” over another severely weakens their argument that religion should not be in our school system. So, the logical solution and I’m playing the devils advocate, its all or nothing.

In case you have never seen or reviewed the pillars, here they are. This is what is being displayed in our public schools in TN as proven by many photos taken of their display and parents statements of kids inside this school system.

The 5 pillars of Islam:

1. The Shahadah
A statement of belief: I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah and I further testify that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah.

2. Salah
Compulsory prayers that are performed five times a day.

3. Zakat
The practice of giving, based on accumulated wealth, and is obligatory for all Muslims who can afford it.

4. Saum
Fasting during the month of Ramadan.

5. Hajj
Make pilgrimage during the Islamic month of Dzul Hijjah in the city of Mecca once in a lifetime for those who are physically and financially able to perform it.

6. Jihad
Islamic campaign against nonbelievers:a campaign waged by Muslims in defense of the Islamic faith against people, organizations, or countries regarded as hostile to Islam

Wanna see the disparity and obvious  hypocrisy?

Please glance at these articles below then look at the “flip side” and see the counter offer by the left to drive the teachings of Islam mainstream in our public schools and the lefts silence and lack of resistance to this religious display.

A note worthy of mentioning is in my exhaustive research I found no item or lawsuit by the ACLU or FFRF demanding that the 5 Pillars of Islam be removed from any venue. I did find many supporting and even large corporations promoting their display.

The hypocrisy and one sided approach to “freedom from religion” is very intriguing.

Atheist group opposes Holocaust memorial on Ohio statehouse grounds

1 Comment

This is from Fox News.

Where in any of our founding documents does the term Separation

of Church and State appear?

I have never been able to locate this term.

Another example of atheist bullying.

statehouse.jpg

An atheist group believes the Holocaust memorial depicted above violates the separation of church and state. (daniel-libeskind.com)

A Wisconsin-based atheist group has expressed its opposition to a Holocaust memorial set to be built on the ground of the Ohio statehouse, arguing that its location violates the separation of church and state and calling the Star of David “exclusionary” in memorializing victims of the Nazis.

But Ohio Gov. John Kasich and proponents of the memorial say it will teach people about man’s inhumanity to man and that, contrary to the atheists’ claim, it will include all those killed by the Nazis — including U.S. soldiers, ethnic and religious minorities, homosexuals and the mentally ill.

Joyce Garver Keller, executive director of Jewish Communities, an organization that represents Jewish groups across the state, said the memorial is intended “mostly to honor those who had survived and who had come to Ohio to build a life.”

Keller said it is appropriate to build the structure on state grounds because it will “remind lawmakers and those who work in and around government of the important role and responsibility they have in speaking out in the face of  hatred, anti-Semetism and genocide.”

“The Holocaust did not begin in concentration camps in the ovens with smoke stacks and mass graves,” Keller told FoxNews.com. “It began in the halls of government with the passage of laws that targeted Jews, taking their properties, their businesses, their home, their freedom and ultimately their lives.

Kasich first proposed the idea of a memorial during a May 4, 2011, annual Holocaust commemoration at the statehouse.

“We need to have remembrance in this statehouse,” Kasich said at the time. “I’d call on the Jewish community, along with our brothers in faith, to develop some sort of a memorial that members of our legislature and members of the public, as they pass through this great rotunda, will be able to understand not just the history of a time when people wouldn’t stand, but the fact that it’s today we must stand against evil.”

“Let’s construct something in this rotunda that can teach people about man’s inhumanity to man, best exemplified by what happened in the Holocaust,” he said.

The inscription planned for the memorial will read: “Inspired by the Ohio soldiers who were part of the American liberation and survivors who made Ohio their home. If you save one life, it is as if you have saved the world.”

“In remembrance the six million Jews who perished in the Holocaust and millions more including prisoners of war, ethnic and religious minorities, homosexuals, the mentally ill, the disabled, and political dissidents were suffered under Nazi Germany.”

The Jewish Star of David will be prominently featured at the site.

Kellers and others call such a memorial “inclusive,” while the Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) claims the memorial is discriminatory and has no place on government grounds.

“The Star of David is a religious symbol that is exclusionary,” Dan Barker, a spokesman for the group, told FoxNews.com. “We’re not opposed to the memorial and we have sympathy for all the victims. We would probably give money to it if it were not on state grounds.”

“A secular government is not supposed to have a religious endorsement,” Barker continued. “I have Jewish heritage myself, but just because we like the religion and we’re sympathetic to Holocaust survivors, doesn’t mean we should violate the precious American principle of separation between church and state.”

Barker said the group expressed its opposition in a letter to the state, but has no plans to sue.

Approximately 11 million people perished in the Holocaust. Historians say at least 6 million Jews died at the hands of the Nazis, as did 1.9 million Polish civilians, mostly Christians. More than three million Soviet prisoners of war died and more than two million Soviet civilians, mostly Christians, were killed. More than one million Yugoslav civilians died and between 22,000 and 500,000 Gypsies were the victims of genocide, according to historical accounts. Approximately 70,000 men, women and children with mental and physical handicaps were murdered as well as an unknown number of political prisoners, resistance fighters, homosexuals and deportees.

According to Kasich’s office, the memorial will sit 84 yards from a bronze inscription in front of the statehouse that reads: “With God, all things are possible.” The American Civil Liberties Union had previously sued over that inscription and lost.

Anti-Christian Group Wants IRS to Go after Billy Graham

Leave a comment

This is from Godfather Politics.

 

This is the biggest batch of loons I have ever heard of.

Billy Graham did nothing wrong.

The Freedom From Religion Foundation is going after Billy Graham because the well respected evangelist encouraged Christians to “vote biblical values.” The folks at the anti-freedom group see this as a violation of some mythical constitutional prohibition. The First Amendment is clear: “Congress shall make no law” prohibiting people from exercising their religious beliefs by profession (speech), press, assembly, and petition.

The Christian religion is based on the Bible. How can the government or a government agency like the Internal Revenue Service prohibit Christians from following the tenets of their religion?

Here’s the content of the argument presented by the Freedom From Religion Foundation:

“[The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association], a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, has run full-page ads publicizing Billy Graham’s call for the electorate to ‘vote biblical values,’” said FFRF in a statement last week. ‘The ads have appeared in several ‘swing state’ newspapers in preparation for . . .  [the] heated presidential election. Throughout the month of October, BGEA published articles favorable to Romney, which included a statement by Billy Graham.”

Encouraging Christians to vote in terms of what the BGEA believes are “biblical values” is not an endorsement of a particular candidate or political party. In fact, a case could be made that Mitt Romney does not fit the definition of “biblical values” since he is a Mormon. Here’s a statement from Brent Rinehart of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association that was provided to the Christian Post regarding the “Biblical Values” ad campaign:

“The ads intentionally do not mention any candidate, political party, or contest, urging instead for readers to cast votes for candidates-at all levels-based on their support for biblical values.”

There are lots of Christians who believe that Barack Obama represents biblical values. Many black people are Christians. Many (most) believe that Obama represents the best of biblical values. So how is what the BGEA violating its non-profit status?

Groups like the Freedom From Religion Foundation and Americans United for the Separation of Church and State believe that “issue advocacy” is an violation of IRS rules. I wonder if these two anti-Christian groups would have said the same thing when the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. were involved in “issue advocacy” and called on ministers and churches to get involved to change the political landscape.

Freedom From Religion Foundation Little More Than a Hate Group

Leave a comment

 

This is from Godfather Politics.

These are just a bunch of school yard bullies.

What happened to majority rule?

Why spend so much time and money on someone you don’t believe in?

 

In the tradition of such liberal organizations as the New Black Panther Party, the KKK and Occupy Wall Street, the Freedom From Religion Foundation makes its living and builds its reputation by publicly bullying a group that it blames for all the evils in society.

The FFRF, founded by atheists Anne Nicol Gaylor and her daughter, Annie Laurie Gaylor, in 1976, is the major organization whose name crops up whenever someone is “offended” by a public display of the Ten Commandments, a graduation prayer or a Christmas display.

They’ve gone after historical markers, courthouse displays and even veterans memorials. There’s no corner of America’s Judeo-Christian heritage that FFRF isn’t low enough to seek to obliterate.

One of their latest targets is a large stone monument with the Ten Commandments erected in 1957 outside Connellsville Junior High School in Pennsylvania. The monument was donated by the Fraternal Order of Eagles.

According to the FFRF, the monument somehow violates the First Amendment. The suit was filed on behalf of a child and parent who said the monument makes them feel excluded, according to the complaint. They also don’t want the monument moved to a nearby church because it would still be in view of the school.

The First Amendment states, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

Oddly enough, there’s nothing in there about school districts not being allowed to display a historic monument donated by local community faith groups just because someone doesn’t like the words on it.

But this is the state that liberal courts and hate groups like the FFRF have brought us to. The First Amendment was meant to protect religious speech, not excise it from public life.

What’s really been going on with the FFRF and the courts getting rid of public religion is the establishment of a state religion called secular humanism, atheism, communism or any of several other names, all of which promote the worship of the self.

The current fad is to pretend that atheism is not a religion, but it is. In the 1950s, humanist organization sought tax exemptions as religious organizations. Julian Huxley called it “religion without revelation.”

In fact the current dodge about atheism not being religion is designed so that Christians can’t do to atheism exactly what the atheists are doing to Christianity — kicking it out of the schools and public life.

 

 

Churches Feed High School Football Players Before Games, Now School Facing Lawsuit

1 Comment

 

This is from Godfather Politics.

Christians need to unite and fight these FFRF clowns.

Christians need to read the Constitution and understand it.

There is not nor has there ever been a rule separating church and state.

 Ronald Reagan said it best about forgetting God.

If we ever forget that we are One Nation Under God, then we will be a nation gone under.

Rossville, Georgia is a small town (1.8 sq. mi.) of about 4100 residents.  It lies just across the Georgia – Tennessee border and is considered to be part of the Chattanooga metropolitan area.  The town is named after John Ross, a Cherokee chief who lived there until being forced to Oklahoma during the great Indian removal.  His log cabin is still there as a landmark.

Like most southern communities, high school football is king in Rossville, home of the Ridgeland High School Panthers.  It has been a tradition for some years now that the football team is fed a nice dinner before each game.  The dinners are provided by ten different local churches, who take turns feeding the team.  Their first game this year is scheduled for this Friday night and one local church is preparing to fix them dinner.

However, in a tradition that can only be likened to Ebenezer Scrooge in Charles Dickens’, A Christmas Carol, the Freedom From Religion Foundation has threatened to file a lawsuit against Walker County Public Schools if the church is allowed to provide the meal for the football team.

In a letter dated August 21, 2012, addressed to Damon Raines, Superintendent of Schools, the FFRF states that the school and head football coach are violating the First Amendment and separation of state and church in several ways.  Those ways include:

“Taking public school football teams to church, even for a meal, is unconstitutional.”

“Coach prayers are both unconstitutional.”

“Using bible verses on team apparel and in team speeches is unconstitutional.”

“[Coach] Mariakis’ participation in the Fellowship of Christian Athletes”

“Pressuring public school students to attend a Christian football camp is unconstitutional.”

Their entire letter to school superintendent can be read here, but they conclude with the following:

“Conclusion

We ask that Walker County Schools commence an immediate investigation into the complaints alleged, and take immediate action to stop any and all violations of the First Amendment including:

  1. The pre-game dinner at churches.  The first scheduled game is August 31, 2012.  Mariakis must not be permitted to take players to a church at any time.
  2. Any WCS employee organization or participation in prayers at school events or activities.
  3. The use of bible verses on school equipment or paraphernalia or as a motivational tool.
  4. Violations of the Equal Access Act by WCS employees, including coaches and teachers.
  5. Mandating, pressuring, or recommending a religious camp or church attendance to public school.”

The Liberty Counsel has contacted the school board and offered their legal services free of charge.  Representing the Liberty Counsel, Richard Mast wrote the school board saying:

“Liberty Counsel disagrees with the overreaching assertion of FFRF.  Among other things, it is permissible for churches to voluntarily prepare meals for members of the high school football team, and for team members to eat them.  The Constitution does not demand the eradication of faith from public life, or that churches be prohibited from participation in the life of the local community.  A church has as much right as any other local civic organization to provide pregame meals to members and guests, even if they are a part of the local high school football team.  FFRF’s letter actually urges Districts to adopt harmful and counter-productive policies that would discriminate against religion, and which in turn would expose the district to civil liability.”

Liberty Counsel founder and chairman Mat Staver commented on FFRF’s actions saying:

“This atheist group continues to lick stamps and send frivolous letters with militant zeal designed to hurt communities because of its anti-Christian fixation. Nothing in the Constitution requires communities to abandon common sense and create zones hostile to religion.”

The Freedom From Religion Foundation is quickly becoming one of the most anti-Christian organizations in the nation.  If it were up to them, they would re-write the First Amendment to read:

“Congress shall make no law respecting any religion, and shall prohibit the free exercise thereof;…”

They hate God.  They hate Jesus.  They hate the Bible.  They hate Christians.  They hate that America was founded as a Christian nation and are hell bent on eliminating everything they hate.  Christians need to stand up and help the Liberty Counsel fight this extreme anti-Christian organization.

Whiny Atheists Sue Schools Over Praying Before Football Games

Leave a comment

This is from Clash Daily.

I find it amazing how hard atheists try to ban someone they don’t believe in.

I no longer believe in the tooth fairy, the Easter Bunny or Santa Claus.

But I am not suing anyone over their belief in them.

So why don’t you whiny brats shut up and move on?

Please do not hand me that BS line of yours about separation of church and state.

The atheists I grew up with in Texas were a tad bit pluckier than today’s lardy hagfish atheists who file lawsuits every time Jesus is mentioned in public.

Yep, the anti-theists I used to hang out with in the Lone Star state were rugged individualists who were so busy milking this existence that they didn’t have time to bleat like a stuck sheep because a plastic baby Jesus statue endangered their delicate beliefs.

My other non-believing buddies who weren’t the robust Hemingway types were usually heady stoners who were into physics, Pink Floyd and Frisbee and were completely comfortable around people of faith versus today’s reflexively irate, touchy atheists who pop a blood vein in their forehead if someone prays before a ballgame.

For God’s sake atheists, übermensch up why don’t you?

Case in point: New America points out that, The Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF), which has gained its reputation (and a tidy living for its employees) by suing school districts and municipalities over public prayer, has chosen schools in Mississippi and Tennessee as its latest targets. According to the Mississippi Press website, the Wisconsin-based atheist group has threatened all 151 Mississippi school superintendents with lawsuits if they allow prayer over public address systems during school football games. Last September the FFRF targeted Mississippi’s Jackson County school district over its inclusion of prayer at athletic and other school events, prompting the district to redouble its efforts to protect the free-speech guarantees of its students.

FFRF and their ilk represent the “we will sue you” nuevo atheists who go after our nation’s Christian holidays and symbolism—but not Islam’s—because it bashes their ideas. Waah. Frickety. Waah.

Yep, according to the 21st century metrosexual atheist motif, anything that offends them should now be banned. That makes me scratch my head because I thought the atheists were the tough-minded ones who could stare death in the face and mock God and His dictates, but now a simple prayer or a silicone statue of Yeshua in diapers puts them in a tailspin. Hello, sweetie.

FYI to the spindly atheists: You’ve got your work cut out for you if you want to scrub culture of its Christian influence because we have rubber stamped this planet via the arts and human expression for many, many moons. Have you ever heard of Bach, van Eyck, Vermeer, Handel, Mendelssohn, Haydn and a writer named Billy Shakespeare? What about the artists of the early Italian Renaissance or the tens of thousands of other artists, writers and composers throughout history who were either die-hard believers or at least worked within the framework of a Christian world-view? Are you going to take a belt sander to their works because they remind you of Hey-Soos?

You know who did atheism right? The late Christopher Hitchens. He didn’t whine or sue schools for singing “Oh, Come All Ye Faithful.” What did he do? He vigorously argued his point of view, engaged the brethren without being a shrill priss and left it to the audience to decide what path they were going to take, and I dig that kind of robust character. That said, as you can tell, I have no respect for atheists who want to ban Christian symbolism because they don’t happen to buy it.

Atheists Demand Massachusetts High School Revise its State’s History

1 Comment

 

This is from Godfather Politics.

I hope the state of Massachusetts keeps ignoring these nit wits.

A small town close to where I live is having the same trouble.

The freedom from religion crowd wants a cross taken down.

The cross sets on property owned by the town.

The town is talking about selling the land the cross sets on.

We need to stand up to these brainless clowns.

If they do not like things in America go to Cuba.

The atheist organization The Freedom From Religion Foundation is demanding that the Wayland High School band “stop playing ‘God Bless America’ at school functions because it violates separation of church and state.” The Massachusetts’ school officials are ignoring the group’s threats, and for good reason.

First, the First Amendment prohibits “Congress” from establishing a religion. Congress is not involved.

Second, the First Amendment, even if it were involved, could not prohibit the free exercise of religion.

Third, no church is involved in what the band plays.

Fourth, there are bucket loads of historical problems with the atheist group’s challenge to “God Bless America.”

There’s the Declaration of Independence that uses the following religious phases: “the laws of nature and of nature’s God,” “endowed by their Creator,” “appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world,” “protection of Divine Providence.”

The Constitution’s reference to Jesus Christ in its dating: “Done in the Year of Our Lord. . . .”

The Preamble to the Massachusetts Constitution states: “We, therefore, the people of Massachusetts, acknowledging, with grateful hearts, the goodness of the great Legislator of the universe, in affording us, in the course of His providence. . . .”

When John Hancock was Governor of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, he issued “A Proclamation for a Day of Public Thanksgiving” in 1791, the year the Constitution was ratified:

In consideration of the many undeserved Blessings conferred upon us by GOD, the Father of all Mercies; it becomes us not only in our private and usual devotion, to express our obligations to Him, as well as our dependence upon Him; but also specially to set a part a Day to be employed for this great and important Purpose. . . . And above all, not only to continue to us the enjoyment of our civil Rights and Liberties; but the great and most important Blessing, the Gospel of Jesus Christ: And together with our cordial acknowledgments, I do earnestly recommend, that we may join the penitent confession of our Sins, and implore the further continuance of the Divine Protection, and Blessings of Heaven upon this People; especially that He would be graciously pleased to direct, and prosper the Administration of the Federal Government, and of this, and the other States in the Union — to afford Him further Smiles on our Agriculture and Fisheries, Commerce and Manufactures — To prosper our University and all Seminaries of Learning — To bless the virtuously struggling for the Rights of Men — so that universal Happiness may be Allies of the United States, and to afford his Almighty Aid to all People, who are established in the World; that all may bow to the Scepter of our LORD JESUS CHRIST, and the whole Earth be filled with his Glory.

There’s our nation’s National Anthem — the “Star Spangled Banner” — that includes this line:

“And this be our motto: ‘In God is our trust.”

The malcontents at The Freedom From Religion Foundation are interfering in the history of our nation and the state of Massachusetts. They are like George Orwell’s 1984 character Winston Smith who works “for the Ministry of Truth as an editor, revising historical records to make the past conform to the ever-changing party line.”

 

Wisconsin atheists try to block Texas nativity

The article below is from The Washington Examiner.
I am thinking of starting a group called Freedom from idiots.
If you do not believe in God that is your business.
But do not try to impose your views on me or anyone else.

Small-town America beware: The Freedom from Religion Foundation, an atheist group based out of Wisconsinregards itself as a “church/state watchdog.” To that end, they’ve challenged a nativity scene in Athens, Texas.
“[T]he Freedom from Religion Foundation says the nativity scene shows favoritism,”reports an ABC affiliate in Texas. “They tell CBS 19 they want it removed, or they want their own sign added . . .[which] would read, “At this season of the winters solstice may reason prevail. There are no gods, no devils, no angels, no heaven or hell. There is only our natural world. Religion is but myth and superstition that hardens hearts and enslaves minds.”
The local judge in Texas says that “because we have all the other decorations, it’s legal.”
